Past Timing Errors that Should Have Pointed to This Year 2018(NO! Not the Rapture, Daniel’s 70th Week) – John Shorey

In a recent newsletter, I have shared how many recent prophetic signs have all been pointing to a year that started last Sept. 2017. I believe these many signs are telling us that we are in the prophetic year that will launch the world into Daniel’s 70th week. I will give a short overview of these signs and events that are pointing to this year we are in now. Then I will share two past prophetic events that calculated the wrong prophetic year and show how they are significant for the year 2018 in which we are now.

Jesus was asked by His disciples, “What will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?”….In Matt. 24 Jesus gave a blow by blow of these coming events. In part of Jesus’ answer He said that we would see signs in the sun, moon, and stars. He then said, “When these things begin to come to pass, look up, for your redemption draws near.”…

In the last few years we have seen significant prophetic signs in the sun, moon, and the stars.

  1. Signs in the sun. In August of 2017, we witnessed a solar eclipse that crossed America from East to West. Jewish Rabbis teach that when a rare event like this occurs, it is a warning of coming judgment to that nation. An event like this only happens every 100-200 years. 2. Blood Moon Event. Signs in the moon in 2014-2015, we witnessed a blood moon event that has only occurred 3-4 times in 2000 years. In these two years we witnessed 4 blood moons occurring on Jewish Holy Days. Historically a major event concerning Israel’s survival will happen 1-2 years following the 4th blood moon. The 4th blood moon was Set 2015. Add 2 years and you are at a year starting in Sept of 2017. 3. Signs in the Stars. Rev. 12:1 talks of a great event in the Heavens. Rev 12:1-2 talks about a constellation called Virgo. It talks about birth pains and even mentions the constellation called the Red Dragon waiting to attack after the birth. The planet Jupiter was in the womb area of Virgo constellation for 9 months around Sept. 20, 2017. Jupiter left the womb area. Think about this. Around Sept 20th is the beginning of a New Year on the Jewish calendar. This event happened at the beginning of the year of which we are now.

Halfway into this year, 2017 to Sept 2018 was the 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel.

Other prophetic events pointing to 2018

  1. 70th anniversary of the rebirth of Israel 5. Mega earthquakes scientists have announced 2018 as being a year of such. 6. We are witnessing great economic and political unrest around the world. 7. I don’t believe I have ever seen the world on such a war-footing as we see today.

In Matthew 24:46-51 Jesus reprimands those who would think that He would delay His coming. Jesus went on to say that He would come when those who think He has delayed His coming on a day not expected and He said those who pulled back would receive a portion with the hypocrites, a place where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth. (This is Hell).

Think about this. If Jesus reprimanded Believers for thinking He has delayed His coming, how can Jesus delay His coming? As I have said, “I believe many signs Jesus told us about are all pointing to the year 2018 that we are in now”. I am now going to share two past events that calculated the wrong timing of the Lord’s return, and I will show how significant these past events are for today.

Many of you may remember back in 1988, a Christian group wrote a book called, “88 Reasons for the Lord’s Return in 1988”. I remember seeing their posters stuck on the back of road signs all over the place. They were so convinced that the Lord was returning in September of 1988, that these people sold their homes to raise money to get out the word out that the Lord Jesus is returning soon. Some even had their pets put to sleep so they would be left uncared for after the rapture.

I read this book a few years ago and one fatal flaw in their calculations jumped out at me. This one mistake ruined their whole calculation on the timing of the Lord’s Return. One of their 88 reasons concerned the length of a generation. One of their 88 reasons concerned the length of a generation. They chose the generation that died in 40 years when the Israelites were traveling from Egypt to the Promise Land. When the Jews refused to enter the Promise Land, because they saw giants in the land. That generation became a generation under judgment.

If you among the youth up to 20 years of age, then at the end of the 40 years you was allowed to enter the Promise land. Your age bracket was not under judgment. If you was 21 years old and refused to enter the Promise Land, than at the end of 40 years of wandering in the desert, you died early at age 61, because your age bracket was under judgment.

So to accurately calculate the years of this generation in the wilderness, you start with the 40 years and you add the 20 years of the youth who were not under judgment. This bring the number up to 60. Then you add in the 10 years for the older part of the generation that died early at 61.

Those that died an early death because their age bracket was under judgment. Now If you add the 40 years, the 20 years for the youth and the 10 years for those who died early, you end up with a 70 year generation. It is just like what Psalms says.

The 1988 group had taken a 40 year generation and added it to the rebirth of Israel in 1948 to calculate 1988 being the return of the Lord Jesus.

What date or year do we get if we add the 30 year error? We get 2018 which coincides with all the other prophetic signs.

Now I want to share a more recent timing error that has caused confusion and caused many to stop looking for the Lord’s return. In 2014 and 15, many books were written about the Blood Moons, The Shemitah Cycles, and The Year of Jubilee. We were drawn into wrong conclusions as to His return being connected to the completion of the 4th Blood Moon. I remember how many believed the Rapture would happen at the time of the 4th Blood Moon. It was very close to the time of the Feast of Trumpets.

If you believe The Rapture is Pre-Trib. then you would believe it would happen at the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week during Trump……I believe most of those who have written books about The Blood Moons and Shemitah cycles were of the Pre-Trib. persuasion which sets them up to believe The Rapture should have happened in the Fall of 2015.

I recall one author saying, “If the Rapture does not happen in 2015, it will not happen for another 7 years.” Because I hold to the mid-week Rapture teaching, I don’t see the Great Tribulation starting until the spring. We will go through 42 months of the War on the Saints, and when The Great Tribulation starts in the spring, this will bring us to the Feast of Trumpets in September….3.5 years later.

I remember when things did not happen in 2015. Mark Blitz came out saying that signs point to an event down the road. When I researched past Blood Moons, the event that followed the 4th Blood Moon was 1-2 years later. I believe the Blood Moons were pointing to a prophetic year 2 years from Sept of 2015 or to Sept 2017.

A second error that was made in 2015 was the teaching that the Shemitah cycle and Year of Jubilee was 2015. I remember emailing one of the authors of the popular book and asked why the year of Jubilee was 2015. The reason I made this inquiry was because the year of Jubilee was calculated from the Balfour Declaration in 1917 than 50 years later, the 6 Day War in 1967. I was confused why you would calculate the next Year of Jubilee in 2015. It is only 48 years instead of 50. I emailed one of the popular book authors and I was given an answer, but it was  still confusing to me. So I recently did a Google search for The Year of Jubilee and found that many Jewish Rabbis believe the latest Year of Jubilee started in September of 2017 to Sept of 2018.

This not only adds up to the 50 years pattern, but it agrees with all the signs pointing to the prophetic year I have said started in September of 2017, which is also the time of the great event in the heavens, the Virgo Constellation event!

Do you realize what this means??!! God did not delay His coming. We just didn’t do our math correctly. All the signs are pointing to this year which will end in Sept of 2018! Remember, when we were taught what would happen in the Year of Jubilee of 2015? Israel would be blessed and other nations would come under Judgment. I remember our being warned that there would be a financial collapse in Sept. 2015.

I was on the set with Jim Bakker that day, and we saw the stock market drop 1000 points? IF we did our math wrong, why did we see the biggest single day drop on Wall Street? I believe I know why. There were over 2 million books printed pointing to this event and millions by word of mouth were telling people to get out of the markets. What happened was not the judgment of God but a self-fulfilling prophecy. Enough people believed it would happen that we made it happen.

Think about this. Every reason we had to make us believe that the Lord’s return would be tied to the events of 2015 should have had us looking to this year from Sept 2017 to 2018. Because we did the math wrong, the church has gone to sleep.

We are now approaching Sept of 2018. All the reasons we had for our looking for judgment to come on America in 2015 are still in play. The judgment is still coming. We just quit looking. Because we have quit looking, when it happens, it will not be a self-fulfilling prophecy. It will truly be the hand of God.

I see all the signs pointing to this year, and I see what will be the beginning of David Wilkerson’s warnings. Number 1, it will be an economic collapse that can’t be stopped. What I see coming by the end of September this year will make what happened in 2015, look like a kid who lost his allowance. This time it will be the adults losing their pension!

As I said, two prophetic calculations on the timing of the Lord’s return…both recalculated, are pointing to the most important prophecy year of our time, 2018.

I know some will say I am setting dates. The Bible says “no man knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return…”. Yet Jesus said He does not want us to be caught unaware. Remember, the disciples asked, “What will be the sign of Your coming?”…and Jesus told them what to watch. I am not setting a date for the Lord’s return. I am only pointing out that the events Jesus told us to watch for, are all coming together this year! I believe we are about to witness the suddenly  events that will propel the world into a date of destiny that will mark the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

You can either sit up and take notice or you can go back to sleep. The choice is yours.

Earlier in this study I covered the 5 teachings on The Rapture. I said that the position you hold can make or break your ability to understand the order of prophetic events.

If you understand what I have shared here, I believe that by September this year the Pre-trib people will again say The Rapture will happen during the Feast of Trumpets in September 2018.

If you agree with me that we will go through 42 months of War on the Saints, then the event coming this Sept. will only set the stage. All the pieces will start to fall together from Sept of 2018 until the spring of 2019. Then we will see the Antichrist rise to power by the spring of 2019 for the beginning of Daniel’s 70th week and the beginning of the coming 42 months of war on the saints.

Daniel 7:21,22,25b “As I watched, this horn was waging war against the saints and defeating them”, 22, “until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.” 25b, “The saints will be handed over to him (anti-christ) for time, times, and half a time.” (3.5 years)

Revelation 13:5, 7, “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months”. 7, “He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.

  1. A look at the pieces of the puzzle.

We have been seeing the pieces of the prophetic end time’s puzzle coming together at a rapid pace. I believe we have seen more signs of the Lord’s return in the last ten years then what we have seen in total since 1948.

What I want to do here is list some of the pieces of the prophetic puzzle that we have seen in recent years and show how they are pointing to the year 2018. I personally believe 2018 is the prophetic year that we will witness the soon coming suddenlies that will propel the world into Daniels 70th week.

After listing prophetic signs and prophetic warnings from David Wilkerson that we have witnessed in recent years, I will then take many of them and weave them into a prophetic scenario story that may or may not happen as I envision.

  1. Signs in the sun

In August of 2017 a solar eclipse crossed over all of America from east to west. Jewish Rabbi’s say this is the sign of judgment on a country. This event is very rare,

2. Signs in the moon

The four Blood Moons we witnessed in 2014 and 2015 all happening on Jewish holy days has only happened three or four times in 2000 years. The similar events of the past 2000 years had major events of deliverance happen 1 to 2 years following the fourth Blood Moon.

3. Signs in the stars

Revelation 12:1-2 talks about a great event in the heavens. It describes the constellation Virgo. This rare event came to completion last September of 2017. This event started the current Jewish year.

4. Shemitah Cycles

Shemitah cycles and the year of Jubilee follow the same pattern. It is recognized that 1917 with the Belfour Declaration was a year of Jubilee. Fifty years later the Six Day War in Israel 1967 was another Year of Jubilee. 50 years later started a year of Jubilee that will end this September 20th 2018. Will something big happen in the next two months?

5. Year of Jubilee, It has been said by Jewish Rabbi’s that the year of Jubilee will bring deliverance and blessing to Israel and at the same time it can bring Judgment to gentile nations.

6. 70 year anniversary of rebirth of Israel

We have just witnessed the 70th year anniversary this year of the rebirth of Israel.

7. The current drafting of the Middle East peace treaty

Right now in 2018 leaders in America are drafting a peace for the Middle East.

8. Warnings of Mega quakes in 2018

9. David Wilkerson’s Warning Signs

The three warnings signs by David Wilkerson starting with an economic collapse, I believe what we thought would happen in 2015 will happen to America in 2018

10. The growing threat to the power grid

More and more leaders and news people are saying an attack on our grid could be imminent.

11. The rise of Crypto currencies

I believe cyber money will be the currency of the anti-christ system; people will be throwing their gold into the streets, you will not be able to buy or sell without buying into the system of the coming One World Government.

12. The plans of the Globalists.

President Trump is holding the Globalists at bay. Do you really think one man can stop them? The Bible warns a global beast government will happen.

I will now draw from these signs and warnings to lay out a possible scenario, showing how all the pieces of the prophetic puzzle could rapidly come together in the coming months and the year ahead.

I am not saying, “Thus saith the Lord on the specific details, but I will be using God given signs that Jesus outlined in Matthew 24, saying “When you see these things begin to come to pass look up for your redemption draws near”.

I did a recent study called, “It’s the Convergence” In this study I explain that it is not just one sign or two or three, It is all of the above. It is all the signs and prophetic warnings coming together that convinces me that we are there. If we are not supposed to know the time of His coming, why would Jesus answer the disciple’s question?” “Jesus, what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?” Part of Jesus answer was, “There will be signs in the sun, moon and the stars,”then down from this same paragraph Jesus said, “When these things begin to come to pass, look up for your redemption draws near.” Note, Jesus didn’t say the day or the hour, but He said, “our redemption draws near”.

From another study I did from Matthew 24, I showed where Jesus reprimanded the believers for thinking He has delayed His coming, and Jesus rebuked the believers for not being prepared to feed their families and others in need. Many think Jesus delayed his coming, no we just did bad math. How can Jesus delay His coming and still rebuke the believers for thinking He did? My recent studies can be found on my web site,

  1. Putting the puzzle together, showing a possible scenario.

I hope to send this newsletter out by July 20, 2018. I believe the first warning from David Wilkerson will come into play by September of 2018, followed by a coming destruction and the invasion of America. I don’t know how much time it will take to complete the three warnings.

  1. Economic collapse that cannot be stopped. 2. Followed by destruction 3. When we are weak our enemies will invade America

Previous newsletters are posted on my website, You can read a study where I show America is Mystery Babylon. And America is standing in the way of the

fulfillment of Bible prophecy. This very important study shows the destruction of America will happen before The Seals of Revelation are opened to reveal the Antichrist.

I believe we are now seeing the pieces of the puzzle are on the table, but the exact order can only be speculated. I believe we will see an economic collapse by the end of this September. The question is, “What will trigger it?”…”Will it be just one event, or many?” I believe the first event that will eventually lead to panic on Wall Street followed by panic on Main Street, then followed by panic on your street could happen at any time.

What are the options or what could start the beginning of the end for America? It could start with another 911 event. I have always believed from reading David Wilkerson’s books that mega earthquakes could start the economic slide. If the mega quakes hit the West Coast from California to Washington, this would probably take out the West Coast grid.

Most people don’t realize that much of S. California power comes from Canada. When the transmission lines go down, so does the power. Giant aqueducts feed the water from N. California to S. California. There goes the water.

Also, if one of the first dominoes is the shifting of the New Madrid Fault, this event would change the flow of the Great Lakes from going over Niagara Falls to flowing down the Mississippi River to the Gulf of Mexico. If this happens, Niagara Falls would go dry and much of the electricity supplying the East Coast would be gone. The ripple effect of large grid failures can take down the whole grid of America.

What would happen politically to lead to the destruction of America? What I will share next will be disturbing to many. I am praying for America and its leaders, but understand, when it is time for the destruction of America, when it is time for the rise of the antichrist, when it is time for the return of Jesus Christ, no amount of prayer will change God’s Time-Clock! I have said that God’s calendar has been written in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and God will not reset His calendar.

We have been warned that key cities in America will be destroyed by nuclear bombs. We have been warned prophetically that the eastern seaboard will be destroyed by a great tidal wave. Which one will hit America first? We don’t know, but either one could destroy Washington, DC and NY City. If either happened suddenly, our political line of succession could be wiped out. There have been prophetic words saying that both former President Obama and Senator Hillary Clinton would play a part in leading America into a Global Government.

If our political leadership were taken out, I could see former President Obama being made interim President, with Hillary as Vice President until legal elections could be held. This would set the stage for America to be sold out to the coming Global System.

Realize, if America is brought to her knees, it would destroy the dollar. The American dollar going down would destroy economies around the globe. This would cause every country to bow

down and accept a new global crypto currency along with a new global solution of a One-World Government.

In one of my previous newsletters, I taught about the Axis of Evil. Four countries who want America taken out are Russia, China, North Korea and a collection of Middle East countries. These countries want to expand territory and take out Israel. When America is taken out, the antichrist will rise and the 2nd Seal, the regional wars of the 2nd Seal will break out.

Recently, there has been a resurgence of warning prophecies saying that former President Obama will be the Antichrist. In my book, The Window of the Lord’s Return, I show that to qualify to become the antichrist, one has to be one of the 10 Regional leaders of the coming One World Government. If Obama is set up as interim president, he would then be one of the 10 that qualify to become the antichrist.

The Bible says, “One of the heads of the beast is fatally wounded.” This is talking about one of the 10 Heads of State being fatally wounded. It does not have to be a wound to the head as is commonly thought. Think about this; the interim President Obama is taken out and 3 days later comes back to life.

He heads to Europe to rule the World, and his interim Vice President, Hillary, takes over! At LAST, she thinks! However her rule won’t last long.

Back to David Wilkerson’s warnings, the economic crash will be followed by destruction. What I have just described covers the first 2 warnings. The 3rd warning, “When we are weak, our enemies will invade us.” I believe this third warning event could follow 6 to 12 months after the second warning.

Remember, this is only one possible scenario. This is not a “Thus saith the Lord!” But remember, we will go down this road one way or the other! I hate to say it, but this newsletter could be compared to the telegraph that was sent to warn Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941. It arrived too late!

I mentioned at the beginning that the position you take on the timing of the rapture can determine your ability to accurately interpret the order of end time events. When a scenario similar to what I am describing starts to happen, those holding to the Pre-trib. teaching will jump for joy thinking the rapture is about to happen. When they realize they have been wrong, it will be too late to prepare.

2 thoughts on “Past Timing Errors that Should Have Pointed to This Year 2018(NO! Not the Rapture, Daniel’s 70th Week) – John Shorey”

  1. Not sure if John Shorey will see these messages, but he did a good job in putting these points together. I have always heard him as one that doesn’t claim to have all the information himself, but he gathers words, messages etc. from other people who have heard from the Lord. He then compiles the info and presents it as a picture.
    One thing I thought about September, is that the fiscal year for the U.S. government ends in September. I don’t know the date or details, but I’ve heard recently where president Trump talked about shutting down the government if Congress doesn’t give him the funding for the wall or something to do with what he wants with immigration. When I heard this, they said clearly that the fiscal year end is September.
    Another think I caught in John’s letter above: he mentioned Obama would be “one of the ten”. That caught my ear because some prophet recently had a message and part of it talked about Obama being “one of the ten”. They didn’t explain that at all, but it stood out to me as an odd phrase. Now, that makes sense.
    Not sure if people tuning in here follow Sister Barbara and Brother Dan on godshealer7 end time prophecy channel, but they have had messages in recent months where so far, the first 3 seals have already been opened. This came out in 3 separate messages over a 2-3 month period. This is not to argue with anything John has said but he may not be aware of that information.
    Also, godshealer7 have said their “prophecy timeframe” they are currently in ends on April 6,2019. They don’t claim to know what will happen at that time, but this current time frame runs from September 2015 to April 2019 and is called the “time of darkness”. Just throwing this all into the mix to go along with all that John has shared. Many things seem to be lining up.
    May YHVH watch over and protect all of you and your families. Shalom.

  2. He makes a valid point and presents his case as an attorney would in court to a jury in the description of a crime and the elements thereof.

    I believe he has a humble spirit with a message.
